Thick big toe nail

I've in-grown toe nail and I've been dealing with it over the years.  Lately my right big toe nail is getting thicker and thicker.  It's getting to a point that it is difficult to cut my toe nail.  What is the cause of that?  Is there anything I can do about it?

sounds like you have fungus.  you can have it permanently removed or have a dermabrasion done to the nails to thin it out. then, file it weekly and apply tea tree oil to keep it thin
